The new Forbes list of highest paid celebrities is out and country music is well represented on the list!

My guess is that Taylor Swift would lead all country artists IF she was still a country star. However, Swift has taken a more pop friendly image and sound over the last few albums.

But according to a report from Metro Source News:

The highest paid country artist is Luke Bryan, who landed at Number 45 with 52-million-dollars.  Garth Brooks was ranked 59th with 45-and-a-half-million-dollars.  Kenny Chesney landed at Number 87 with 37-million-dollars.  "Forbes" ranks its Celebrity 100 using their pretax earnings from June 1, 2017 through June 1, 2018.

Floyd Mayweather was top on the list with $285 million and George Clooney at #2 with $239 million.

The current Mega Millions jackpot is up to $422 million this Friday and I wouldn't mind grabbing a chunk of that. Heck, I wouldn't mind if I was the last spot on the Forbes list.

By the way, the "bottom" of the list is a three-way tie at #98. It features Dr. Dre, Dave Chappelle and Nas with a measly $35 million.
